Small Successes-October 7th

Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. As much as I hate doing it,  I cleaned all of the fixtures in all three bathrooms.  I can once again say that the sinks, tubs and toilets are clean.  How sad is it that I've come to a point where I'd rather clean a toilet than scrub toothpaste off the girls' sink?

2. It's not really my success, but Madeline made the school chorus.  I sang all through elementary and high school so I'm very proud that she's inherited my ability to sing.  Success: I produced a child who can sing.

3. I cleaned my stove top this past weekend.  I couldn't stand looking at all the stuff that had bubbled over onto the burners.  I realized that I was the only one who was going to clean up the mess [that I didn't make] so I did it [without complaining to the one who made the mess].


  1. GREAT JOB! Cleaning the bathrooms is one of the worst jobs, but of course it's one of the rooms that is most important to keep clean. Congratulations to Madeline!

  2. Karen - you amaze me. Will you come clean my house? Please??!! lol

    YEAH for the gift of music..I lknow JUST what you mean!!

    I love a clean stove too.

    I'm sorry I've been MIA so much lately. I love reading you, I promise!!!!! Hugs to you!

  3. Great job! I have a flat top range and it is still a pain to clean, so kudos for that. And #1, oh how I detest cleaning the tubs and sinks.

  4. Yuck, I hate cleaning the stove. I don't know how the burners get so dirty. I feel like I just did and already I smell burning when I turn them on. Great work!

  5. I hate cleaning the bathroom! I wipe the counters and the top of the toilet daily so that I can put off actually scrubbing the bathroom. YAY for clean stoves! And not complaining! Good for you!
